Reset your Twitch passwords

 

Twitch has suffered from a security breach, which has forced them too reset all passwords.  Twitch say that limited credit or debit card information was compromised.

Here is watch  Twitch say in their official blog.

 

"We are writing to let you know that there may have been unauthorized access to some Twitch user account information.

For your protection, we have expired passwords and stream keys and have disconnected accounts from Twitter and YouTube. As a result, you will be prompted to create a new password the next time you attempt to log into your Twitch account.

We also recommend that you change your password at any website where you use the same or a similar password. We will communicate directly with affected users with additional details."

 

Reset your Twitch passwords  

Many Twitch users have been sent the following email, which we have acquired form Venturebeat. 

 

"We are writing to let you know that there may have been unauthorized access to some of your Twitch user account information, including possibly your Twitch username and associated email address, your password, the last IP address you logged in from, limited credit card information (card type, truncated card number and expiration date), and any of the following if you provided it to us: first and last name, phone number, address, and date of birth.

PLEASE NOTE: Twitch does not store or process full credit or debit card information, so your card number is safe.

While we store passwords in a cryptographically protected form, we believe it’s possible that your password could have been captured in clear text by malicious code when you logged into our site on March 3rd."

 

As always when it comes to breaches like this we advise you to change your passwords for all sites where you use the same password as Twitch and that you be extra careful and look over your credit and debit card transactions incase there are any questionable transactions.

Users who are affected by the breach have been sent the email above, so be sure to take any necessary precautions if  you are one of these users.
